How to Decorate for a Beach Christmas

‘Tis the season for sun and sand.
You don’t have to live near the water to have Christmas on the beach this year. With Coastal Christmas decor you can bring the laid-back feeling of a seaside paradise into your seasonal decorating.
Start by trading your traditional Christmas tree for a white- or silver-flocked tree that complements a Coastal palette. Adorn your beach Christmas tree with seaside-themed ornaments such as seashells, starfish, and glass floats for a nautical touch, and use classic round ornaments to add pops of color. Wrap long pieces of fishing net, sisal rope, or burlap ribbons around the tree to complete the beach look.
A decorative ship’s wheel or a ring-shaped life preserver is easy to decorate and display as a beachy wreath; just add some colored ribbons or rope and attach beach Christmas decorations to make the wreath match the rest of your decor.
A wooden oar hung horizontally on a wall provides an area for stockings or a coastal garland with beach Christmas ornaments. Create tabletop displays and fill other empty spaces with motifs of small beach decorations and strands of white Christmas lights.
